Hello from Hawaii
I've had a top bar hive since last July and it's been going pretty well. I just set up a Lang in the backyard in March. I purchased the top bar from backyard hives so it has a solid bottom and here in Hawaii it's kind of hot for that set up. The girls are bearding right now! I guess I have to drill some holes and put in some soffits. I have pulled 4 bars of capped honey out of this hive so far and one more is going to be ready soon. I guess the girls work all year around here in Hawaii, although I did notice some slow down during the winter months. I'm pretty much still a novice at this beekeeping business but I have discovered a great hobby here! I might have to put up a fence if I start anymore hives..LOL
